Lee set up Keebeck Wealth Management in Chicago last year, with backing from Dynasty Financial Partners.

A former employee of Merrill Lynch, Lee was dismissed from the firm over “conduct including failure to personally complete mandatory firm compliance training, resulting in management’s loss of confidence”.

At present, Keebeck Wealth Management oversees $950m in assets and focuses on serving HNW individuals and families.

Commenting on the new venture, Lee noted: “We look forward to seeing the team’s perpetual innovation and are excited to participate in the continued evolution of quantitative trading.”
